Good evening, folks. Well, what'd you all put your noses into today? D
I was snooping around Armani's, Pierre de Lune from the Privé Collection. The name of the fragrance, Pierre de Lune, makes me think of Sailormoon again. Because at the beginning I thought there was just a name with a "moon" name in it, but it means "moonstone".
And who knows Sailormoon, and it in its youth (yeah, also as a boy, ... :D) extensively looked at, has also certainly still the title song in the memory, in which among other things the following line appears:
"...say the magic word and you have the power.
Hold the moonstone and feel the power..."
Well... the song burns into your brain, whether the lyrics interest you or not. Much more important for us pubescent boys was rather the question which of the warriors was sexiest and which boy might be in love with which warrior... preferably all of them, of course, because they wore all MINIRÖCKE!!! My "darling" by the way was Sailorvenus, because I found the prettiest *hach*... ah those were still times. Anyway, this anime series was firmly connected with the moonstone term, which is why I had to think of Sailormoon :D
But back to the fragrance before I'm laughed at, because I watched Sailormoon too, but that was my first anime (Japanese cartoons). The scent here was of course not inspired by Sailormoon, but by French gardens and should radiate above all iris and oak and thus reproduce what such nobles at the Versailles Castle are said to have worn ... but what this has to do with moonstones, I could not find out. Now for the fragrance:
At the beginning one smells soft, powdery iris, but also herbaceous green notes. For a while, the green notes even smell like freshly cut grass, which is really great, especially if you're into the smell of grass. Only shortly afterwards the violets appear. They are weak, but give off a nice sweetness, which is not very intense.
For a long time the fragrance actually remains as just described, only that the green and tart notes continue to decrease, which is a bit of a pity. The iris still smells like it began and radiates its powdery scent. In addition, there are other, light and loose flowers that appear soft and fresh.
In the base the fragrance looks even less green, but it remains sweet and powdery nice, but unfortunately also very weak in terms of radiance.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The charisma is rather weak, but at least a short while at one smells, at least from the proximity. Could've been stronger, because it smells so nice. The shelf life is better, even if the fragrance only radiates weakly after six hours.
The bottle is black, rectangular and has rounded or convex edges at the upper edge of the bottle. On the front there is a square indentation in which the golden label is embedded. As always, the lid is an eye-catcher that is white with this fragrance and thus looks like a smooth polished stone. All in all very beautiful as always.
So, Soo, the scent here is supposed to remind you of the gardens of Versailles Palace? Well, I guess so. Because it smells beautiful of flowers, grass, general and gentle spring breeze with beautiful, powdery and also pure smells. It's actually like a breeze that you sometimes notice and sometimes not, because the scent is unfortunately a bit too weak. At the beginning still briefly smellable, it becomes at least with me after still not even one hour quite close to the body. He smells nice to me for a while, but I guess he won't be noticed by others much soon.
Nevertheless, it is a very beautiful fragrance, which has a very pleasant scent and is especially suitable for spring and summer. As it is weak, it is therefore best suited as a day fragrance for yourself, which you could use both in your free time and at work.
But I still don't know why the scent is called moonstone. Say, there's no flower called moonstone, is there? :DD I Blumenbanause don't know such a thing! Because when I think of moonstone, I only think of miniskirts... um... I meant Sailormoon, of course! :D
Be that as it may, the fragrance is very worth testing if you like soft, slightly floral-green and powdery-pure fragrances. Because of this fragrance, I think the fragrance also goes clearly in a feminine direction instead of being unisex!
And I'm done with that again! I wish you all a nice evening, you "see" each other :)
